Philadelphia, PA- The Philadelphia University women's soccer team (11-7-4, 8-0-3 CACC) fell 1-0 in the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) women's soccer match against the Georgian Court University Lions (12-6-5, 7-1-3 CACC).  GCU's game-winner came on an own-goal by PhilaU.  The Lady Rams won the CACC regular-season title outright going undefeated in conference play.   

The Lady Rams outshot the Lions 29-3 in a game that saw PhilaU control the tempo of the match for the majority of the 90 minutes.  

The Lions had a chance to score in the first half as sophomore Shannon Mastrogiovanni fired a direct kick from right outside the box that drifted just wide. GCU got on the board with a PU own-goal with less than two minutes remaining in the first period to give the Lady Rams a 1-0 deficit heading into halftime and the eventual game-winner.

Forward Sara Redka (Williamsport, PA/ Williamsport) had a team-high seven shots for the Lady Rams. 

Senior goalie and CACC Player of the Year Sara Hall (Newark, DE/ Wilmington Charter) had one save for PhilaU, while GCU keeper Lindsay Hammond had 16 saves for the Lions. 

Several members of the Lady Rams earned CACC All-Tournament honors including: seniors Brianna Reinford (Gilbertsville, PA/ Pottsgrove) and Christy Bauckman (Silver Spring, MD/ Good Counsel) along with sophomore Redka.
